City Paper Film Fest Frenzy in stands now!

Pick one up or read it online!

“This weekend (Thursday through Sunday, to be precise) MFF XI presents screenings of dozens of often excellent films from around the country and the world (see below), a sampling of myriad creative worlds that any weekend of web surfing would have trouble equaling, all projected on the big silver at the Charles Theatre and other midtown venues–an experience no laptop screen can match. The festival also brings in the filmmakers themselves, to host screenings and sit on panels, narrowing that usually yawning gap between those who make the movies and those who watch them and providing the kind of rich viewing experience that no DVD extras menu could (visit for a full schedule of non-screening activities). And then there’s the opportunity to filter through the Charles’ lobby and the festival’s tent village with filmmakers, critics, and other fellow film nerds. It’s better than an online bulletin board for sure, not least because there are bars close at hand.”
